Description Conrad Meyer 2017-06-28 11:25:24 EDT
Description of problem:
Dwarves shipped in Fedora is the ancient 1.10 version from 2012, plus two patches.  However, upstream has continued to actively develop on the git branch without tagging a new release.  There are dozens of improvements present in git not included in the package shipped in Fedora.


Please consider updating dwarves to a newer release.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

See https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Versioning for how to version a "post-release" version like this.
Comment 1 Conrad Meyer 2017-06-28 11:26:23 EDT
Or, consider tagging a new release in git if you like (and updating the package to that).  You are the upstream developer :-).
Comment 2 Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo 2017-06-28 15:05:30 EDT
Ok, tagged v1.11, pushed to the git.kernel.org repo, thanks!
Comment 3 Jan Kurik 2017-08-15 02:51:10 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 27 development cycle.
Changing version to '27'.
